It sure is. And "locked down" versions at that. (Can't turn on script debugging, for example.) Beyond that, we're prohibited from installing anything that's not "approved." (Our legal department nixed the free version of VM Ware because VM Ware would not sign an 18-page amendment assuming "unlimited liability." Gee, what a surprise. :roll: )
I do happen to have admin rights on my machine (which I would lose if Site Security found out), but I was not able to install Safari.
I found the DOM Inspector in Firefox under the Tools menu, but it's not very impressive. [ November 25, 2007: Message edited by: marc weber ]

Officially, yes, but I might try it. Otherwise, there's someone in desktop support that's sympathetic, so maybe I'll talk to him about what I could do. (He's the one that left me with admin rights on my machine.) Meanwhile, I'll need to push for getting something through the red tape.
Edit: I just installed Firebug on my iMac, and it looks pretty cool. (Not as pretty as Web Inspector, of course, but it looks like it would do the job. ) [ November 25, 2007: Message edited by: marc weber ]
